I’m confused. We preassembled the entire pole then tried to raise it.
Are you suggesting raising say a 10′ section vertically, stabilize with guylines, then lift that up higher vertically, adding say a 4′ section to the bottom, and repeat?
Yes, section at a time and with a person on each guy line to hold and stabilize as you raise each section up. Not even sure that would work, but it seems like it should.
